Power Technology Inc.

BioPhotonics
Apr 2013
Power Technology Inc. of Little Rock, Ark., has acquired diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) laser manufacturer Klastech GmbH of Dortmund, Germany. Klastech DPSS lasers are based on patented intracavity impedance-matched amplification-tuned technology, which uses a complex dual-cavity design that increases second-harmonic conversion efficiency, produces inherently diffraction-limited output and provides natural frequency-selective performance. The lasers are suitable for metrology, biofluorescence, Raman spectroscopy, semiconductor inspection and holography applications. Under the acquisition, Power Technology will retain the Klastech organization and integrate products and employees into its organization. Power Technology manufactures laser diode products for OEM analytical, biomedical, machine vision and industrial applications.


GLOSSARY
laser cavity
A means of optical confinement intended to increase the gain length of radiation prior to emission from the device. The means of optical confinement used to increase gain path length vary depending upon the properties of the beam desired within the lasing medium. High light intensities occur within a laser cavity and dielectric mirrors coated for the lasing wavelength are used.The position and curvature of the optical cavity elements may be altered in order to optimize the laser performance as...
machine vision
Interpretation of an image of an object or scene through the use of optical noncontact sensing mechanisms for the purpose of obtaining information and/or controlling machines or processes.
metrology
The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
